Denmark’s COVID-19 count at its lowest since July

Not a bad return given that Denmark recently lifted all restrictions

Just a few hours ago, Statens Serum Institut confirmed the country’s lowest count of daily COVID-19 cases since July.

However, while there were only 324 cases between Thursday and Friday afternoon, the hospitalisation rate remains higher than two months ago at 105. Of those, 24 are in intensive care.

Three times more a month ago
The daily count has decreased significantly compared to August.

A month ago on August 17, the daily infection rate stood at 984, which is more than three times the latest count.

No need for alarm?
Not too long ago, the government decided to lift all restrictions concerning the virus, which led to a re-emerging club scene and crowded dancefloors.

However, while many were impatiently awaiting to finally reclaim their pre-pandemic life, others were alarmed by a potential peak of COVID-19 cases.
